15 paid iPhone apps on sale for free for a limited time

Best Free iPhone Apps

Behold: our biggest list of paid iPhone and iPad apps on sale for free of the week. There were so many solid applications being discounted today that we had trouble narrowing things down, so we included a whopping 15 apps in today’s post. If you somehow still need even more choices, you’ll find a few additional options in yesterday’s post, where several premium apps are still on sale.

DON’T MISS: 8 reasons I still can’t leave the iPhone and switch to Android

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written. If you click on a link and see a price listed next to an app instead of the word “get,” it is no longer free. The sale has ended. If you download the app, you will be charged.
